  7. SilverBull worked with Arborist first aid trainers for 2 years identifying the essential first aid items needed for Climbing Arborists or anyone using a chainsaw. A C.A.T Tourniquet and 6” Israeli Bandage are two potentially lifesaving items that with the right training, can be used to quickly stop a catastrophic bleed. The SilverBull P.A.T (Personal Arb Trauma) kit is designed to contain these two essential items and easily attach to a belt or climbing harness. The easy open function and “pull cord” release feature means the system can be easily operated using one hand. The bright orange colour and green First Aid symbol, make the SilverBull P.A.T Kit clearly identifiable by colleagues. The new Silverbull Arb Trauma Kit and it's contents are available at TREEKIT now. The new Silverbull Arb Trauma Kit and it's contents are available at TREEKIT now.

  9. I have just completed and passed a First Aid course at AGE121 and they basically outlined a few things that come in handy for Arborists. Maybe it would be useful giving them a call. I'm not sure who you should ask for, but maybe one of the guys who arranged my training can help. Thanks
  10. Hi everyone. My name is Billy and I am in the very early stages of setting up my health and safety consultancy SG Safety Group LTD. I am also a qualified Arborist but unfortunately injury has forced a new career path. I am after some thoughts from you guys on how useful my new business venture would be to the arb industry. I know through experience that if you want to register with CHAS or SAFEcontractor they make you jump through many hoops so I could help with this and also compliance with the law. It's only going to get worse for red tape. My plan is to offer services that include: LOLER inspections Bespoke health and safety policies Responsible person status on a retainer Safety audits and inspections COSHH assessments Risk assessments Method statements Fire risk assessments Certified Manual handling training Certified First aid training Certified COSHH training plus a few other things. I know that a lot of you trade as sole traders and some of these services won't be of any use to you but any thoughts on what will work or what I might be wasting my time with would be great. The Arb industry isn't the only industry I service but with my background it is something I want to explore. All the training can be done at your premises or home. Anyway let me know your thoughts and please be gentle.

  12. Hi All Reason for starting this particular thread is if anyone had ideas for "the essential" First Aid kit. I came across a product called Celox hemostatic granules (see link below) and ALWAYS carry. There's also Celox - A for deeper wounds. Basically you sprinkle them on large wounds and they clot the blood very rapidly and prevent potentially life threatening blood loss. I reckon EVERY climber should have it in their kit. If you purchase a packet of either Celox or Celox-A carry it in a tupperware and clearly label "Blood Stopper - Just Sprinkle on wound" making it easy for your workmen to identify. Also make your work mates aware that you carry it. Let's face it even though tree surgery work has improved it's H&S tenfold in the past ten years; it's still a dangerous occupation. Going to work without it is like going to Bangok without your rubbers. http://www.sammedical.com/celox_original.html http://www.sammedical.com/celox_a.html
